You may not realize how impactful some teachers are while you’re in school, but later as you look back and feel grateful for having them influence your life.
Lindsey Carter is one of those teachers. Carter currently teaches 4th grade for Ninety Six Elementary School. She has also taught 3rd and 5th grades and has been with the District for 11 years.
Carter was recently named Teacher of the Year for Greenwood School District 52 and pictured here receiving her award by Superintendent Rex Ward.
Carter believes teaching is an evolving process as she grows professionally. “I strongly believe it’s important to build strong relationships with my students and their families”, explained Carter. By doing this she believes a sense of community is created and fosters learning throughout the years.
Carter holds a Bachelor’s Degree from Lander University. She’s a member of the South Carolina State Council International Reading Association, Piedmont Reading Council and Palmetto State Teachers Association.
In 2012, Carter was awarded the Superintendent’s TopCat Award for Excellence & Performance and later in 2015 appointed a member of the TAP Leadership Team.
She will begin the process of competing for the 2019 State Teacher of the Year beginning in November. In her role, Carter will be a member of the Teacher Forum who has the responsibility of assisting with development of the 2018-2019 school calendar.
